Background Shading Fill Color in Note Containers:
Note Containers should have a user-selectable background shading or fill color using any hue from the color pallete. This would be similar to a MS-Word text box. Also, could have visible border with user-set-able attributes of width, style, and color. Several other users, I think, might have posted this same suggestion but instead referring to the item as "textbox" rather than Note Container.
I use (and like) the single-cell table workaround. It's quick and easy.
YES, THIS! Also, it would be nice to outline as needed
In addition, the ability to fill a container background with a selected image would be fantastic. Allowing an option for auto scaling, crop or fill for the image and some of my containers would look fantastic. Such as brainstorming bullet points and mixed idea boards.
Even offer (or third party) container templates, with caption bubbles, cloud bubbles and other "inside edge framing". This paired with a visible border would be fantastic
Why is this not there?????
This is so obvious. It saddens me I search for how to do it and find this page. I am sad. My notes are all 1 colour. Why have multiple note containers if you can't colour them differently?
Sad face me - please implement
Vote for this - assumed it would include basic Word formatting options. Shading of background for sublet emphasis is often preferable to lurid highlighting of text.

I searched the menus and help file to find out how to do this before discovering that the feature does not exist. I, like all the commenters here, heartily endorse this upgrade idea.
A possible solution using 1x1 tables. It's quite quick

Background colors for note containers would allow more creativity. I do a lot of comparisons and what-if analysis. Fill colors would make visualizing notes easier.

This is an obvious and extremely useful upgrade. Especially to all of us using OneNote for daily notes and or Bullet journaling. Kinda surprised Onetastic hasnt already done this but, but would be awesome if MS OneNote team could get it into the next creative update.

If you start the not container with a 1 cell table, you can shade the table.
Then add your content to the table.
If accomplishes the request, but not as nice as it should be.
I want to be able to easily find the containers as if they were noted notes.

This feature would definitely help a lot

This feature should be default from the start.
This would be extremely useful.
When will this happen? Such a no brainer!
